Gentle Giants

I like creating small landscapes.  Always want a barn somewhere too.  They stand out to me when I'm driving down the road.  Some I've seen over the years are no longer standing or their roofs have fallen in.  I have fond memories of  playing in the hay mound of these gentle giants.  My cousins and I would make Forts and tunnels with the square bailed hay.  I don't see many farmers using this form of bailing anymore.  The BIG round bales are a lot handier to move around these days.  Less manpower!
